Biography

Outspoken and straightforward, but with a twinkle in his eye, comedian and best-selling author Greg Behrendt found success as a stand-up comic with his blunt and realistic comedic insight into the male psyche. Coining the phrase "He's just not that into you" while working as a consultant on HBO's critically-acclaimed "Sex and the City" (1998-2004), Behrendt inadvertently became a sought-after relationship guru and went on to co-author the aptly titled New York Times best-seller, He's Just Not That Into You with "City" writer Liz Tucillo. Named as one of Variety's "10 Comics to Watch in 2001," Behrendt performed his sly stand-up on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (NBC, 1992- ) and "The Late Show with David Letterman"(CBS, 1993- ), among others. In 2006 Behrendt appeared in his own stand-up comedy special, "Greg Behrendt is Uncool," on Comedy Central and with a one-two punch, signed a deal with Sony to host his own daytime talk show, "The Greg Behrendt Show" (2006- ).
